... strikes again: Kate Winslet is separated from her husband. I really thought, if anyone could be safe from the curse, it would be her. I mean, her husband is Sam Mendes, the director of American Beauty and other renowned films. He has had a brilliant career, he is a director, not an actor, so they are not "competing" professionally. Is no one safe?! Ok, I give Sandra Bullock's marriage two years, tops. How sad.
